Fake News and Proverbs


A word to the wise….

If you haven’t heard a false rumor about the Covid-19 virus, you've probably been in a coma.

We live in the information age with millions of facts at our fingertips. But there's also lots of misinformation. And we need wisdom to know what's true and what isn't. Sometimes even major news agencies get taken in and have to post retractions (Example).

I love the book of Proverbs because it contains short, pithy statements that fit so many areas of our lives. For example:

"The simple believe anything, but the prudent give thought to their steps."  ~ Proverbs 14:15

So before we pass along the latest "cure" or conspiracy theory about the Covid-19 virus, the latest political plot, or a rumor about our neighbor, let’s stop, pray, and check our facts.

And why not add some wisdom to your days. Did you know that if you read a chapter of Proverbs each day, you will read the whole book every month? Yes, it has 31 chapters. 

But don't be confused and think proverbs are promises. That's a Proverbial Mistake.

I encourage you to read the purpose of Proverbs in chapter 1:1-6 and memorize verse 7 or memorize Proverbs 9:10. And if you'd like to read a collection of 1-minute devotions about different verses in Proverbs, check out the Bible Love Notes Proverbs Archive. It has over 30 concise devotions offering "words to the wise."

With all the fake news circulating, the Book of Proverbs is more important than ever. This 1-minute devotion explains.
